Nick Diaz Challenges Daniel Cormier… I Think…

Nick Diaz, who stole our hearts with his in-cage rantings and out-of-the-cage ramblings, is at it again. No, I’m not talking about more domestic violence charges, or another USADA suspension.

I’m talking about him challenging UFC light-heavyweight and heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier to a fight.

At least, that’s what I think he’s doing. He might be challenging Brock Lesnar… or even Anderson Silva (who he already fought).

I don’t know. Sometimes when the older Diaz brother starts rambling, I lose track of what he’s trying to say.

This is also true of Nate, the younger Diaz brother, by the way.

Sick of this all this “baddest man on the planet” bs. I’ll fight for any title at Any weight. @Ufc wants to make bs wwf fights with guys that fight like shit and put on an act. @dc_mma would look way worse than I do in this pic if he fought Anderson the way I did but instead he decided to wrestle fuck him for five rounds in front of his whole life And still almost got finished off in the last round with Silva only having two or three weeks notice @danawhite should give me this fight instead of dick chest Brock Lesnars cheating ass #dontbescaredhomie nothing personal I love Dc but I don’t like what he does-constantly embarrassed for him and the sport I started doing MMA because it’s not WWF and I’ve never put on A bs act in my life I’m sure fans would like to see a real fight @nick_diaz_academy

Two More Felony Charges Added to Domestic Violence Case Against Nick Diaz

The case continues to mount against controversial Ultimate Fighting Championship star Nick Diaz.
Recent News on Sherdog.com

Nick Diaz Just Got Hit With Another Felony Charge

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight title contender and longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran, Nick Diaz, is taking his licks from the Clark County District Attorney’s office — and his case hasn’t even gone to trial yet.

Diaz, 34, was hit with a second felony charge on Tuesday (July 10, 2018) when prosecutors filed an amended complaint, which now includes a felony count of battery constituting domestic violence by strangulation and felony battery domestic violence resulting in substantial bodily harm.

“We were surprised that the state filed an amended complaint in court this morning given that there is no new evidence that would warrant adding charges,” attorney Ross Goodman told MMAjunkie.com. “Regardless, we are confident that that truth will come to light vindicating Mr. Diaz after a thorough cross-examination exposing inconsistent and contradictory allegations.”

Diaz was arrested back on May 24 after allegedly injuring a female acquaintance. He was arrested and initially charged with felony domestic battery, but later released on $ 18,000 bond. UFC has frozen his contract and will not take any action until the legal process is complete, stressing its code of conduct while also citing the right to due process (read the full statement here).

The Stockton slugger has not competed since his 2015 no contest opposite Anderson Silva.

Judge Shuts Down Greedy Prosecutor In Nick Diaz Court Case

Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight veteran, Nick Diaz, was represented by his attorney, Ross Goodman, at today’s (June 26, 2018) court hearing in Las Vegas, Nevada, where the Clark County prosecutor lodged a criminal complaint against the Stockton slugger for his involvement in last month’s domestic violence arrest.

In addition, a request was made to increase the former Strikeforce champion’s bail to $ 100,000, because the prosecution believed Diaz — a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter by trade — was a greater risk if forced to pony up anything less.

MMA Junkie reports:

Judge Amy Chelini ultimately refused the request, saying she “can’t fathom” a reason to increase the bail above the standard set by the court. She appeared to agree there were inconsistencies in the alleged victim’s story that would need to be proven at trial. She added Diaz shouldn’t be punished based on his occupation.

“I don’t care,” she said. “He’s going to be treated the same way everybody else is.”

Diaz, who maintains his innocence, is expected back in court on July 10.

The incident occurred back on May 24 after Diaz was accused of injuring a female acquaintance. He was arrested and initially charged with felony domestic battery but later released on $ 18,000 bond.

UFC has frozen his contract and will not take any action until the legal process is complete, stressing its code of conduct while also citing the right to due process (read the full statement here).

Midnight Mania! Watch Nick Diaz Eat ‘Shrooms

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome, to Midnight Mania!

Nick Diaz is putting his problems out of his mind and relaxing the old-fashioned way: ingesting some shrooms.


Insomnia

Yep, Greg Hardy, the man too violent towards women to stay in the NFL, is getting open arms from UFC matchmakers on the Dana White Tuesday Night Contender Series.

Dana White said that Al’s insistence that he make more money to fight higher ranked guys is unreasonable, and is the reason the Justin Gaethje fight won’t be happening. Al disagrees and Justin Gaethje retweeted his response.

Dana White once gave a talk to the business community about keeping fighters financially dependent on the next fight so they couldn’t afford to turn any matchup down, or negotiate from strength.

Mitch Clarke has been killing it with the GIF replies

McGregor boxed once last year, lost badly, and still managed to come in fourth on the world’s highest paid athlete list. Remarkable.

Clay Guida has energizer bunny energy.

It’s crazy to me that Dominick Cruz and Daniel Cormier are the same height.

Shot, re-shot

Eddie Alvarez liked the early weigh ins and is mad to see them go.

Eddie doesn’t seem to take into account short notice fights.

I like Angela Hill’s idea.

So does Shane Burgos

John Danaher breaks down technique in extraordinary detail with these very long captions.

Auxiliary systems: Most of you know that I am a big proponent of a linked subsystems approach to jiu jitsu. Classical BJJ is a system based approach to combat. I build upon this through the use of subsystems – systems built around specific areas of the game that create tremendous expertise in that domain that can enable an athlete (often with less overall experience than his opponent) to trap his or her opponent within that system where they have a significant knowledge, skill and experience advantage due to specialization and can win from there. As these subsystems grew in complexity I divided them up further in various ways that aided students in learning and applying them. One of the more interesting types of division was that between MAIN systems and AUXILIARY systems. In the case of our BACK SYSTEM, the main system is built around a set of arm traps that allow an attacker to pin his opponent’s defensive arms to facilitate the use of the most high percentage back finish – the rear naked strangle (mata leão/hadaka-jime). There is no question this is our main method of attacking the back and the one that has garnered the most success in competition. However, in cases where we cannot get the breakthrough by this main route, there are four AUXILIARY systems that go in a totally different direction. Instead of facilitating the breakthrough of one submission in one area (rear strangle around neck) they employ a diverse array of submissions OVER THE WHOLE BODY. This play between the narrow focus of the main system and the diverse applications of the four auxiliary systems is a big part of what gives our overall back system its character. Here, Garry Tonon shows his skills with one of those four auxiliary systems- the rear triangle (ushiro sankaku) as he locks in an impressive looking strangle in training.

Don’t Rush to Judgement on the Nick Diaz Incident

Nick Diaz is sitting in a jail cell in Las Vegas, NV, courtesy of domestic battery charges. As of this moment, rock-solid details are sparse, but TMZ tracked down the alleged victim, and she made some serious allegations.

Hat tip to MMAJunkie for finding Diaz’s buddy, who posted to Instagram a possible flipside to the ugly coin.

If it wasn’t clear, I’ve got this guys back if he needs me always and completely. One of the best people I know, and that’s the truth, he just plays by his rules, views the world very differently than most and has been fucked constantly. Seeing how everything evolved here infuriates me. The news is out so better to address than not, and for my own sake, not really on his behalf. I’ve seen drunk guys get in Nick’s face and avoid serious injury because he’s a martial artist and a killer but knows that and he’s passed the point of needing to prove it. He doesn’t even act tough to people… There is no scenario where Nick would put his hands on anyone unless it was necessary self-defense, and then watch the fuck out. Moving on, the girl who is accusing him is the most deranged and insane I’ve met to date. She has been obsessed with and stalked Nick for maybe 2 years now. Suicide attempts, calls to his family from fake numbers, thousand of calls a day – yes thousands, showing up everywhere he goes following his story… He changed his number to get away but Vegas is small and they crossed paths again. She left their interaction feeling some type of way yesterday and put in a fake report to get even and have him arrested which she’s threatened to do many times before as well. I can’t even fully digest this whole thing because of how insane and wrong it is. If Nick’s at fault it is because he has chosen again and again and again not to make a police report against her like I’ve advised profusely in the past when she has hit him or broke his phone or broke into his place or stolen things from him or threatened suicide, etc. Everyone is going to think what they think when they see the news so it’s very important for me to at least put something out that is actually factual. #fakenews

Nick Diaz: Someone Gave Me A Poisoned IV Before GSP Fight

The elder Diaz has some interesting theories on why things went so wrong for him in his UFC 158 fight against the Canadian legend.

Was Nick Diaz poisoned leading up to his UFC 158 fight with Georges St-Pierre in 2013? Occam’s razor would certainly point to no, but that hasn’t stopped Nick from periodically bringing up the claim. Now the tale is getting new life with the news that the UFC wants GSP to fight Nick’s little brother Nate, something Nate doesn’t sound interested in at all.

TMZ Sports asked Nick what he thought of a potential Nate vs. GSP match up, but things quickly went down the conspiracy hole.

“I think whoever tries to make that fight, I’m gonna have to give him a backhand slap,” Nick declared. “At the end of the day, I fought [St-Pierre], they poisoned my IV with some kind of weird ass drug. It put me to sleep!”

“I have 37 fights, been fighting for 17 years, I never slept more than five or six hours a night,” he continued. “I slept 14 hours, I’m like ‘What did you put in my IV, dude?’ I never had nothing but clear IV. And there was something wrong with his wraps. I know they didn’t test us either because they was filling up all our piss inside little film containers.”

”I was flat on the way out, I was like I’m in the best shape of my life,” he finished. “Everything was strange. No disrespect, I don’t think ol’ Georges did nothing, I think people were trying to pull something.”

But as far as that Nate vs. Georges fight? That’s a hells naw from Nick, who had a message for the UFC:

”At the Nick Diaz Academy, Nick Diaz says who fights who.”

Nick Diaz Suspension to End Soon

Lovable MMA fighter and ardent weed smoker Nick Diaz may return soon. Or at least he’ll be able to from a USADA-suspension perspective.

According to ESPN, Diaz’s suspension – which he was hit with for totally blowing off telling USADA his whereabouts – will be up on April 19. After that, Diaz could return to fighting… if that’s what he even wants.

Despite ascending to great heights in popularity, both in the Octagon and in other organizations, the older Diaz brother has made it clear this whole fighting thing sucks and he’d rather be doing something else.

Which is sad for us, because when Diaz fights, it’s usually fun as hell. His last fight, against Anderson Silva at UFC 183 back in 2015, was chock full of Diaz shenanigans.

Here’s ESPN:

Diaz, 34, has accepted a one-year suspension from the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for missing three out-of-competition drug tests within a 12-month span. He is the first athlete to record that violation under the UFC’s program.

USADA announced Diaz’s suspension on Monday. The timing of the announcement is unique, in that Diaz has already served nearly all of the suspension.

The one-year period of ineligibility is retroactive to the date of Diaz’s third missed test, which was April 19, 2017. That means the suspension ends in just 10 days.

Diaz (26-9) has not expressed interest in a fight for some time, but has never officially retired.
